Although he’d played a 16-song encore just ten days earlier in Fort Lauderdale, in St. Paul Bowie skipped the encore after playing what Bream called an “often terrific” 95-minute set. It was a set full of deep cuts, starting with “Quicksand” and including “I Can’t Read,” a Tin Machine song Bowie had recently reworked for the movie The Ice Storm. Though he ultimately treated the crowd to hits like “The Jean Genie” and “Fashion,” the concert was heavy with new material from Earthling.
“Beats of the electronic variety are clearly Bowie’s preoccupation,” wrote Bream. “He has updated older numbers, such as ‘Scary Monsters’ as a space-age throb, to fit in with newer pieces, including the melodic techno ‘Little Wonder’ and ‘Hello Spaceboy,’ a megawatt industrial workout that was the night’s high point.”
David Bowie Tour band 1997 Earthling Tour
Superb Bowie Performance From The Earthling Tour. David Bowie’s 20th studio album was originally released in February 1997 on Arista Records. Earthling showcased an electronica-influenced sound partly inspired by the industrial and drum and bass culture of the 1990s. It was the first album Bowie self-produced since 1974’s Diamond Dogs.
The Earthling Tour started on 7 June 1997 at Flughafen Blankensee in Lübeck, Germany, continuing through Europe and North America before reaching a conclusion in Buenos Aires, Argentina on 7 November 1997. On August 14, ‘97, Bowie performed at Hungary’s Student Island Festival in Budapest, where he put on a quite extraordinary show, accompanied as he was by Reeves Gabrels on guitar, Gail Ann Dorsey on bass, Zack Alford on drums and Mike Garson on keyboards. Playing just a few tracks from the new record plus a fine selection of back catalogue gems, the entire show was broadcast, both across Eastern Europe and indeed in the US too on selected FM stations. Previously unreleased this remarkable gig is now available on this priceless CD for the first time..
